Hi everyone, it’s Pam here, using the fabulous Blue Bay collection from Kaisercraft. Peeled paint, shabby shutters, newsprint, woodgrain… Blue bay has all this and more. With its neutral colour palette with soft greens and blues offset with shades of turquoise, this collection is nothing short of gorgeous!
So here’s my first layout of the month using this collection. This is my son Jack many years ago-he really was a beautiful child wasn’t he?
I started this layout using Placid paper as the base for the layout. I added some extra colour with some random stamping using the Kaisercraft Script background stamp and the Lagoon mini ink stamp pad. I also flicked some spots of black ink over the page.
I really liked the wood planks on the bottom of this paper, so decided to make a feature of them. I used a craft knife to cut around three sides, and then adhered some patterned paper underneath. I used some foam pads to raise the planks away from the layout to add dimension.
I layered up some patterned papers under my photo and sewed them all together on my sewing machine, before adhering the stack to the background.
To the left of my stack I added some more stamping, this time using the stamps from the Blue Bay collection. I also stamped onto my photo connecting it to the adjoining papers:
To embellish the layout I cut out a cycle from the Misty paper and adhered it on foam pads. I also use some of the die cut collectables and a wooden flourish.
I hope you love this collection as much as I do!
